### Category Description for Transition Mathematics

The first year in this 6-year curriculum. Initial topics (decimals, scientific notation, measurement) may contain considerable review for some students. Variables and translating between words and algebraic expressions are not discussed until chapter 4. The pace is slow, but this may prove beneficial since the jump from arithmetic to algebra has traditionally been difficult. Transition Mathematics allows the student to improve arithmetic skills while gradually adjusting to mathematical abstractions. Concepts and skills in this course serve as a foundation for Algebra and Geometry.

The following topics are covered in 13 chapters: decimals, large and small numbers, measurement, order of operations, variable expressions, positive and negative numbers and fractions, the commutative and associative properties, problem-solving strategies, overlapping probabilities, angles, parallel lines, quadrilaterals, bar graphs, graphing lines, translations, the distributive property, proportions, real numbers, area, volume, coordinate graphs and equations. A ruler, protractor, and scientific calculator are required.

### Customer Review

**Terri F. from Juneau, Alaska wrote the following on 07/11/2007:**

My son used this text last year. He found it very easy to use. The explanations and examples were thorough and he was able to complete his daily work with little extra input or explanation from me. It's a bright, colorful book and has practical examples of application for each subject matter covered. I never once used the teachers manual; I found reading through the student text enough to help when he got stuck; I also have a math background which may or may not make a difference. What I did find extremely useful is having the Teachers Resource File CD-Rom; it contains daily lesson pages, tests, solutions, and teaching aids. It also had 4 varieties of testing to appeal to various learning styles. I don't see it listed here but if you can get it, it would be well worthwhile. I haven't used any other math programs so I really don't have much to compare to. However, this program was recommended to me for my son by a math teacher who has used and tried a number of different texts. My son is more of a hands on learner than not and she felt this would fit his learning style. After using it for a year, I have to agree. We'll be ordering the next book in this series.
